Recap of Monthly Goals:

Integrate new scene into ‘Amelia’ WELL. I changed this to ‘start editing whole manuscript’. I PRINTED IT. (so exciting) and have been working my way through it.

Post Regularly – I missed about three posts last month.

Lose weight/work toward health –  crossing this one off because I have made some improvements in my health. A new health update should be up soon!

Read more books on Jewish living –  I’m currently reading Jewish Roots by Dan Juster. I also went through the 4-week Bible Study called Rest and Release.

Write a letter to one person a month  – yes!

Try a new recipe – Pumpkin Bread with Chai Coconut Glaze from theroastedroot.com  – it was yummy and moist but we weren’t overall thrilled with it. It wasn’t sweet enough, or pumpkiny enough for our tastes. I was super impressed with the glaze though – yum! I also made the Grain-Free Waffles from Against All grains.

Watch/Read a documentary/biography – I watched part off Hidden Killers of Edwardian and Victorian Homes. It was really interesting and I plan on watching the other two episodes.

Recap of Oct goals:

Go to a pumpkin patch – nope. I had it planned but then it fell through thanks to feeling terrible!

Deep Clean Laundry Room – I got halfway through it…

Call Disability Lawyer again – nope

Buy Cover for the VW Bug – yes! it’s going to be too big but we’ll jimmy-rig it

Trim crazy grass bushes in front of yard

Prep for NANOWRIMO –  This one fits in with my monthly goal of Amelia’s scene/editing.

1 thing I did that I didn’t think I could: I worked in the yard three times!!

 

Nov Goals:

Finish Cleaning Laundry Room

NANOWRIMO

Donate stuff to thrift store

 

Because of Nanowrimo, at least one trip to Bend, and at least three doctor appointments plus a lab to do, I am keeping November’s goals light. One other thing to note, in case you don’t follow me on Instagram (click on photos on the right from IG and it’ll take you there!), we lost our beloved 12 year old golden, Lady, on the 21st of October. It was sudden and shocking and we miss her so very much.

It has shaken me up so much that I just couldn’t write here, or edit my novel, for about a week. We buried her on my parent’s property and I head there soon to ‘check on her’ one more time before winter sets in.

I have a feeling that my novel is going to get several new scenes that are sad while I do Nanowrimo this month (if you aren’t sure what I keep referring to, I explain it here). Which a book can always use! (although, I will admit that I’m reading a novel right now that I am struggling to get through because bad things keep happening the the MC. . . I keep muttering to the author ‘if such and such happens, I’m not going to keep reading’… but since it’s a book that I got free for a review, I am. I am assuming that by the end, I’ll like it…??) Anyway, if you’re doing nano, I’m dreaminagain on the nano site.

Happy November!
